big thanks to hanzo for tossing me this one in the LNBA Secret Santa BIF. enjoyed from my sam adams snifter.
a - brew pours a fairly lush and thick black with a thin creamy mocha tan head that hung out for the party. nice chunky lacing giving the head a concave look as the lacing clung to the glass while the head fizzled away.
s - big chocolate covered booze soaked wood. really decadent and rich. the dark coffee is evident and really compliments the smell. everything is in the right place.
t - huge chocolate. dark coffee. i get more whiskey than bourbon, but the wood and booziness is a great match for the beer and the blend.
m - the first thing i noticed about this beer was the feel. super silky. really rich and filling.
o - BIG beer. very rich and very filling, but really tasty. super enjoyable.

3.94/5 rDev -9.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Pours a pitch black color capped by an inch of tan foam; a smattering of lace is left behind
Smell: Ashy oak and burnt coffee beans with bittersweet chocolate undertones
Taste: Scorched black bread and "Charbucks" coffee, up front, with bittersweet chocolate building, in the middle; after the swallow, the Whiskey barrel treatment adds weight and a hint of vanilla; somewhat boozy in the finish
Mouthfeel: Full bodied with moderate carbonation; some warmth in the gullet
Overall: Normally, my reviews mark down beers for having to much sweetness but, in this case, I think the beer would have benefited from some sweetness in the malt to balance out all of the char and burnt flavors; not a bad beer but just my two cents
